It seems that some nefarious forces have also caught wind of the door and the power it may contain…




Features

The Season of Heritage Story Continues!

Spark’s intuition leads him to believe that the final mechanism of the door requires Electric-type Pokémon to power it. Work with Spark to catch Pokémon as he makes progress toward unlocking the final mechanism of the mysterious door located at the historical cave site. In this event inspired by the power plants found in the Kanto and Kalos regions, you’ll be able to catch Pokémon like Magnemite, Voltorb, and Helioptile!

In the shadows, it seems that a nefarious force has also caught wind of the door and the power that lies beyond it…

Team GO Rocket Strikes!

Just as Spark has obtained enough Electric-type Pokémon, he’s hit with another flash of intuition that something bad is coming. His suspicions are confirmed after he finds a crumpled piece of paper detailing some of Team GO Rocket’s plans for a take-over! He notifies Professor Willow and the team leaders, and they quickly rush out to take on the villains!

As they continue to deal with Team GO Rocket, Spark can’t help but feel that there’s more to this take-over than meets the eye…
